For me, photography is a way to express intuition, playfulness and intentional care. Primarily I use 35mm color film, scanned and often paired together in a myriad of ways that create balance (color, shape, thematic content). Sometimes I have no conscious reason for grouping images side-by-side. I just know that I like it. Then later, various meanings begin to surface. If you look closely, there are many hidden messages that emerge on repeat (or first-time) viewings. Film is "conscious" in that way. It can tell us things about the nature of reality, even predict the future. Stylistically, I find that white boarders and black framing amplifies color vibrancy and helps center my attention as a viewer. This aspect - concentration of mind - is central to all my work. It is the means through which subtle dimensions of reality, those insights which are "Yogic" and difficult to define verbally, are made accessible. Above all, my motivations are to express something of a great love and respect for all beings, and a desire for goodness to manifest through self-awareness, self-regulation and self-transcendence.
